|Eileen and Dad|
I worried that Dad wouldn't remember Jim, and, at first, it did seem that way. The name seemed familiar to him, but you could tell the connection wasn't quite being made. At one point, though, we moved their chairs side-by-side for photos and the proximity seemed to do the trick. Dad looked at Jim, leaned over, and said, "Long time, no see, James."
|Dad and Uncle Jim|
We had a lovely visit. It was so good to see them. I'm hoping Dad carries the memory of their Christmas visit tucked away in his heart for many days to come.

that's me in the front in the red.)
